According to official information, at the moment all passengers traveling to the Azores do not have public health control measures at the entrance.
We recommend that you visit the official website on the Covid19 epidemic situation of the Regional Government of the Azores for more information.
When we travel, safety and health are natural concerns. The decrease in COVID-19 cases and a highly vaccinated population, as well as easy access to antiviral medications, make the Azores a destination considered safe in relation to the COVID-19 epidemic. However, to ensure your safety and that of others, it is important to be aware of the sanitary measures in force in the region and to maintain an attentive and responsible attitude. We have gathered some useful advice in this section. Note that the information is not binding and that you should always visit the Covid 19 website of the Regional Health Authority for official information.
Use of masks
The mandatory use of masks is restricted to places such as healthcare facilities, integrated continuous care units, residential or care structures for vulnerable people, the elderly or people with disabilities, and home support services. The use of masks may also be required in other locations if determined by the Regional Health Authority.
If you have or are accompanied by someone with cognitive or developmental disability or psychiatric disorder that prevents the use of masks, simply present a multi-use incapacity certificate or a medical declaration proving your condition. Children under the age of 10 are also exempt from wearing masks.
If you intend to visit someone in a healthcare facility, it is mandatory to present a negative COVID-19 screening test result. This test can be an RT-PCR done up to 72 hours before the visit or a validated antigen rapid test performed by a healthcare professional up to 48 hours before. However, if you have a recovery certificate or a medical discharge certificate for COVID-19, or if you are a child aged 12 or younger, you will not need to present the screening test.
Practice healthy habits
